RE: Two way slab designed as one way

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]

How can there be flexural cracking  if   it  is designed to have one way
In my opinion, the moments will be redistributed in the short direction
before any failure occurs.

You also need more than shrinkage/temp steel in the 16' direction, or there
will be flexural cracking

	I would like your opinion on designing two way slabs as one way.

	Ex.   12 ft x   16 ft  slab designed as one way  on the 12'

	My opinion is that it  is possible but it would be more economical
to design
	it as two way slab.
